"My team of instructors (Annabelle and Tonisha) were a blast to work with! They really care about your goals and focuses on getting you there as quickly and efficiently as possible. Since I'm a person who likes to master what I do, every time I miss a move or make a simple mistake we go over it together until its perfect. I'm so happy I decided to work with her!"

- Rich C.

"I don't consider myself to be a particularly athletic person at all. Before working with The Dancing Designer, I've had little to no dance practice whatsoever. But, through our Dance Therapy lessons, the duo(Lawson and Tonisha) had been able to work with me. In under three months, my flexibility and my range increased from what it was. If you're looking for someone patient to instruct you in the 'ABCs' of movement/dance (for a more than fair price) then I suggest Lawson + Tonisha. They were able to assess your range and tailor each lesson to build on your weaknesses while maintaining your strengths."

We commonly get asked a myriad of questions in one form or another. However, we have decided to address all those questions for once and for all. Keep reading and you might find that these questions, may have been your questions.


What do I wear? Ladies should wear heels, and a comfortable outfit, which they feel sexy in. Fellas can wear and footwear they feel agile and comfortable in.


How many classes should I take ? You do not have to sign up for a number of classes from the word go. You can do the 1st class and decide how you want to move forward from there. 


How important is dance experience? You do not need dance experience. We teach Salsa from the basic and fundamentals of body movement. You just need to show up with a great attitude and an open mind.


Do I need a dance partner? Salsa is promoted for couples, but you can absolutely attend by yourself. Dance is a journey, which can be experienced alone or with a partner. My main objective is for all who attend the class to leave with a better understanding + connection to their bodies while getting an exhilarating work out experience.
